Paul, writing to the church at Corinth said, “I urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.” For God says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. Now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.” (1 Corin. 6:1-2)
On August 21, 1885, the very first edition of the Kosse Cyclone was printed. The publisher was a man named James O. Jones. That week, the Galveston Daily News printed the following quote from Mr. Jones.
